at the end of the year unless congress acts. president obama and john boehner picked up where they left off in dueling public appearances where both sounded conciliatory but didn't seem to budge much. you must add to the president's to-do list one more thing. he needs a cia director after general david petraeus resigned, admitting to an extramarital affair. joining me now is new jersey democrat senator robert menendez. and in new york congressman peter king who is chairman of the house homeland security committee. good morning, senator. it's good to see you. let me start out with the petraeus matter. do you believe that this leaves a big hole in military intelligence operations or can they carry on smoothly? >> well, mike morell who is the second in charge is an excellent individual, has the president's confidence and can carry on in the interim. obviously, general petraeus was a tremendous asset at the cia. it's unfortunate. i respect his decision under the circumstances. and i'm sure the president will now seek out a new cia director. but in the interim i believe the kgs can continue to f

. >> over the last 20, 30 seconds we have president obama as far as we know doing everything he can. he is satisfied with what the u.s. has said and done so far. >> in his statement yesterday i thought they were helpful. they are in line with what the congressman and i have said here today, and i hope we're aggressively pursuing that idea that israel has a right to protect itself, but people all over the world have a real interest in trying to stop this violence from being initiated by hamas and gaza. >> because the president has also said apparently please don't equate gaza to israel. >> we always will stand behind israel. they're our ally there. we have to do whatever we can help them to protect their citizens. >> congressman, senator, thank you both so much for being here today. >> okay. >>> when we return, solving the financial crisis before it's too late and, later, the political fall-out of the benghazi investigation.

happened then was, frankly, i think when barack obama got elected, he did not get from the republicans the degree of cooperation we gave. when mitch mcconnell said my number one agenda item is to defeat this president, harry reid didn't si that when george bush came to him with the stimulus. i do not find this playing on both the houses appropriate. >> he did call him a liar and -- a pretty bitter times in there as well. >> but he also worked with him to get a stimulus, worked with him to pass the tarp when he asked us to, worked with them -- the whole period of 2007 and 2008 there was a great deal of cooperation on areas that i'm familiar with. >> do you remember good old days? >> i do remember good old days. just to put it in context, let's say, when i arrived in 1989 from connecticut, where we have politics. i was surprised at how partisan congress was. i saw it in some foreign policy questions where i didn't expect to find it, and i would say over the years congress has become more partisan. the last two years probably the most partisan and the least productive. the clean air act,
